Getting about 14.5KB/sec download right now on the Lotus2002-11-01 24bit flac show.

Do a bunch of people have to download at once in order for speeds to be better (like bittorrent) or does it matter?

that show is now queued to go onto the archive's and stanford's freecaches. Therefore, you are seeing normal speeds, but once the cache is filled, then future users will get it at much faster speeds.

I figured this out by going to the second level status page (www.freecache.org, clicked on status, then clicked on one of the freecache hostnames):

http://www.archive.org/web/freecache/status2.php#sls-310-LNX.Stanford.EDU

we are getting a 45% cache hitrate, which should improve once the caches fill up and our policies get tweeked.
